UPDATE – 30 May 2014 – Andrea Roth is on Twitter (andrearoth888).
Andrea Roth (Catherine Martin in RINGER) will be playing Rachel Matheson in the NBC pilot REVOLUTION, a post-apocalyptic fantasy series the premise of which is that all technology suddenly stops working. If that sounds familiar, you have probably read Stephen Michael Stirling‘s EMBERVERSE series. Mr. Stirling is not given a writing credit on the show’s IMDB page, but J.J. Abrams’ concept sounds amazingly similar to that of Emberverse.
Considering that, even if RINGER is renewed for a second season, Roth’s character will almost certainly be subject to some form of incarceration, REVOLUTION may be the only way, outside of RESCUE ME reruns on FX, that we will get to see her on TV. I do entertain the slim hope that Siobhan will break her out of whatever facility contains her, keep her hidden somewhere as a secret lover, and help her plot revenge on Olivia Charles (Jaime Murray), but that’s probably not going to happen.
Not that much is known about REVOLUTION beyond the basic concept. Giancarlo Esposito (ONCE UPON A TIME) will play someone named Captain Neville. The rest of the cast is unfamiliar to me. You can bet there will be lots of action sequences. No fewer than twenty stunt people are credited as being involved in the pilot. Jessica Harbeck will be stunt double for Andrea Roth.
For some reason, Andrea Roth has absolutely no web presence. She is not on Facebook or Twitter. Nor, so far as I can tell, is she on any of the more esoteric social media sites. I wonder why?
